My little girl turned three so I decided to bake her a beautiful pink cake minus the nasty colouring agents in honour of divine girly feminine! This is a modified recipe which was inspired by Food & Home Za and wow what a beautifully pink and moist, scrumptious cake it is!

Disclaimer: the kids didn’t really like the cake but the mums did and indulged in two slices each!
